Burgers have been a staple of American cuisine for decades, but the rise in gourmet burger restaurants in the UK has not gone unnoticed. With locally sourced meats, endless toppings and homemade sauces on offer, the humble burger has come a long way from a slap of plastic cheese, a cold bun and a dollop of ketchup.
We love a tender patty as much as the next person and we’ve scrolled the web to find our favourite, mouth-watering recipes, ensuring you don’t have to pay a fortune for a delicious treat.
